in california. when he was left to california, he was shown around by the conservative components of the party, the governor, who voted for roosevelt and he never saw johnson. he took that very personally on election day. he lost california by 3773 votes. it took two days. he was president for 10 minutes. he calls the his apartment in new york, the butler answer is, and he says, "the president- elect has gone to bed." "welcome and will you tell him when he wakes up that he's no longer president?" literally that is what happened. in those days it took a few days to get all of the returns from the west which turned out to be to his volley. been the greatest issue became preparedness. host: this history show a good track record of when these problems arise to finding ways to counteract them or at least fix them before the next elections take place? guest: policy issues? host: or procedures, what ever. guest: survival has a remarkable effect on political parties. it was unified and vehemently anti-wilson. it came up that year to be warren g. harding of ohio. the rest, as they say, is history. host
. california passing a measure that raises the state sales tax by a quarter of a percent, and the income tax for high earners. maryland became the first date in the nation to grant institution breaks for illegal immigrants. there is a direction here, is in there? a tale of two shearson aggressive arizona. a sixth term. and 80-year-old mary republican who calls himself the toughest sheriff in america, and lots of people believe him. for it -- further south, a second term. a 43-year-old openly gay republican and a very public dispute with his former lover who is also an illegal immigrant both men won a convincing 53% margins of the vote. perhaps a metaphor, if not for arizona, for the country. i have to tell you, i like both of these guys. they do good work. up next, congress now on the clock. the nation less than two months from going over the fiscal cliff. will they put the country before partisanship? the "a-team" taking that up and more. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list that's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyd

for a minute in the battleground states. what about california? if part of you can't get 45% of the vote, much above 40% of the vote in california is not a party about the future. >> and blaming chris christie is exactly maybe what's wrong with the party. you tell me. he should step above it. but can he? >> i think there are a lot of republicans that need to fight back. and you look at this party, jon meacham, this party has lost 5 out of the last 6 elections when it comes to the popular vote. and they had a great victory two years ago, but the same thing happened in 1994. look historically, jon. 1992, bill clinton, a new democrat wins. two years later rejected by a republican revolution. two years later, re-elected. the same thing has happened again. by republicans who have won. republicans won an historic landslide. we were here two years ago. a lot of unhappy democrats. two years later, they're seen as overreaching and rejected by the american people. >> democrats have shown a greater capacity of the modern era to learn from adversity. and the '94 example is the great one. president bush, i

to try to put more women in congress across the country. i am proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators. women are empowered in california. i also want to acknowledge that although our members are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate. senator elapsed tammy baldwin [applause] senator idiolect maisie toronto. hirono. only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that is very exciting. unfortunately we do not have kathy hochul this next congress, but the future is soon coming upon -- we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are. we are still finishing up some of our campaigns. we are very proud of the success -- as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams of american families are. they may not know that, they may not know one party from the next and the rest, but we now that without roza deluaro we w

california brother was praying for the day when medicare kicked in. he had no coverage and couldn't afford to buy it. so when you extend the medicare eligibility age, i clearly want to fill that gap with coverage, affordable, accessible health insurance for those who were in their 60s and are going to need that coverage even though medicare isn't officially onboard. >> is that going to cost more money? we all want to make sure that people out of work don't die of heart attacks because they don't have health insurance. we're not talking about expanding programs, we're talking about how we save medicare and medicaid because both of those programs are not only going bankrupt, they're going to bankrupt this country. how do we do that? you're telling us what you want to do to maybe add a new program. what do we do to save the existing programs we have from bankrupting the country? >> one thing is obama care, as much as it's been kicked around during the course of the campaign. the notion that we're going to have everyone in america under the protection of health insurance is a good one. and it
